The Palin-Trump Show

by Jonah Goldberg

I like the way Palin is yanking the press’s chain by not announcing where her bus will go (Attention suits: Will somebody now take the NRO Bus Tour idea seriously? I’ve only been pushing it for a decade).

But I can do without the shmoozing of Trump. Starting from a very low base, I dislike Trump more every day and, other than getting even more media coverage out of it, I don’t know what Trump does for Palin (or anybody, but himself). I understand why folks liked it when Trump was going after Obama. But I don’t think it’s good for anybody to have Trump cast as some sort of leading conservative or Republican. I don’t even like him being treated like a leading American. As far as I’m concerned, he’s the world’s richest carnival exhibit.

Oh, and as a native New Yorker, I was horrified to see the way Trump and Palin ate slices of Pizza at that pizza joint. The Today Show cut to Trump using a plastic fork to peel up a piece of cheese over and over again. It was like a little hate crime each and every time.
